toy drive for children in foster care

Join Let It Be Us as we collect toys for children in Illinois foster care and deliver them throughout the Northern Region of Illinois.

We are working together with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services office in Waukegan, CASA of Lake County, and group homes and the gifts will be distributed to the neediest children.

The Let It Be Us Toy Drive will be available to receive new, unwrapped gift donations at the following locations:

  • Let It Be Us Headquarters, 145 West Main Street in Barrington, Illinois on December 14th and 15th from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Donation details:

  • We request that toys be new and unwrapped.
  • The gift list will be updated frequently so check.
  • Donations of wrapping paper, ribbon, and tape would also be appreciated.

Thank you to those who are able to participate with us. For corporate sponsorships, please contact Susan McConnell, Executive Director, at susanmcconnell@letitbeus.org.
